“Incisive, thrilling singing, wonderful to hear” Andrew Dickson, Guardian arts writer
Cantemus Chamber Choir, based in Cardiff, is fast establishing a reputation as one of the country’s finest choirs. With an experienced membership of around thirty voices, our conductor is Huw Williams, Director of Music at Bath Abbey. Our President is the internationally-renowned countertenor, James Bowman. We sing a wide range of music from the Renaissance to the present day and we’re particularly noted for our performances of Baroque music. We’ve featured on the BBC ‘One Show’, BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’, and Radio 4’s ‘Sunday Worship’, and have performed Handel’s Messiah at Buckingham Palace, where we received a standing ovation.
Working regularly with musicians and soloists of national and international repute, we maintain a busy concert diary and have undertaken numerous successful tours. Our Christmas CD, Nativity, was released on the Regent Record label in November 2015, receiving widespread critical acclaim. Our latest disc, Under a Celtic Sky, was released in autumn 2017. 2018 is our 25th anniversary year and our exciting programme marking this milestone can be viewed here.
Our CD of Christmas music, Nativity, is available from this website and from all mainstream retailers including Amazon and Prestoclassical. It’s also available for download from iTunes. For more details, visit our Recordings page. Listen to some sample tracks here!
